    So, this show got a promo on Raw, AND is streaming on the Network. So I reckon it could get it's own thread, since it's basically a mini-PPV.

    Card so far
    Last Time Ever
    The Undertaker vs Triple H

    Winner gets a title shot
    The Miz vs Daniel Bryan

    John Cena/Bobby Lashley vs Elias/Kevin Owens

    Of note is the fact this show takes place after Bryan's contract is supposed to expire, but they only just announced his match this morning.

    Also scheduled to appear are Ronda Rousey, Shawn Michaels, Shane McMahon, and The Big Show. The Shield will also apparently be fighting as a trio.

    According to the stadium's website this starts at 6pm local time which is 4am our time. Triple H v The Undertaker is the headline match so far at least. If The Shield are fighting as a trio then I'd expect it to be against The Wyatt Family (minus Rowan). Though the belts have to be defended so maybe they'll be fighting separately. Also it's a weird thing now in WWE because they are building to this, HIAC & Evolution at the same time. Backlash this year was basically an afterthought show behind the GRR.

    Awful name for the event. Sounds like the guy doing the John Cena prank call

    Oh my friend... how wrong you are...

    WWE haven't had an Universal Champion on screen for the best part of 18 months they prob can't remember how to book that belt anymore.

    And the Intercontinental Championship drops off the radar as soon as it gets hot. And seeing how it's after coming off a decent run with Rollins and then Ziggler I imagine it will now play 3rd fiddle to Reigns and the bogus Shield Reunion.

    Listen to that about once a month, one of the best things on the internet

    to put in the random thoughts thread or here...

    I'm calling Venom Balor at this show.

    Venom comes out 2 days before the show and the Demon Gimmick would 100% suit venom, it'd be akin to Rey Mysterio and his WM Superhero gear

    Gargano did the Venom thing at Takeover.

    So any reason they're doing all this for Australia? They pay like Saudi Arabia?

    Will they have Peyton, Billie and Buddy in matches?


  • Registered Users Posts: 60,428 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson


    Last time ever till the Saudis pay to see it.


    Also wasn’t it reported a while back that Bryan signed a new contract?

    How long before a Studio actually pays the WWE to gimmick up Balor as one of there characters.

    We knw Edge won't be at it as he's doing the ITR Tivoli show on Sunday 7th Oct

    Hopefully a UK show similar to this follows suite in 2019 and I'll deff travel over for it


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,611 ✭✭✭✭ERG89


    Looks like a skippable big budget house show like this Greatest Royal Rumble was. I wish it was Taker wrestling for the last time as I've no interest in seeing him in ring anymore. His work now resembles Hogan's stuff when he last wrestled for WWE.

    I’d never heard it so I went and looked it up. It did make me laugh especially the bit where they were pretending to be calling about the military but why the f... would you keep answering?

    Ssshhh don't question it or point out holes just enjoy it :pac:

    Some people think it's bad manners not to answer the phone, and if the number was private each time then you could justify it I suppose

    Between this and the women's PPV, there is no "regular" PPV event for October. Big gap between Hell In A Cell on September 16th and Survivor Series on November 18th for a regular PPV.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,005 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    So it's a 10am start time here for Sat 6th Oct

    Will really throw back the years of watching wrestling on a Saturday morning

    Yeah I love that, the nostalgia kick will be nice.

    Gonna be tricky for anyone watching the McGregor fight though, it’s on the following morning at around 6am but for anyone who watches the full card like myself, it’s 11pm. Daytime nap will be essential. :D

    And the Edge inside the ropes is on the following night in the Tivoli

    Buddy technically the hometown hero. Could see a title change here.

    With how WWE treat hometown guys these days I’d expect him to lose convincingly and Alexa to come out and kick him in the nards


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 42,429 Mod ✭✭✭✭Lord TSC


    Becky vs Charlotte for the women's title added to the card.

    Also, local ads are saying
    hbk to special ref the HHH/Taker match.

  • Registered Users Posts: 242 ✭✭Ali Bomaye


    So pretty much a Smackdown PPV with a Raw undercard and two geriatrics wrestling one another, saving the Raw titles for the Saudis is it? I usually like these shows, at least they feel a bit different than the usual, it's just going to be such a long show.

    What's the story with this show anyway (as in why is it happening)?

    Money. That’s why.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,960 ✭✭✭Autecher


    Match quality wise i’m not expecting much though hopefully i’m wrong, but watching wrestling on a Saturday morning is something I haven’t done in about 15 years so I am looking forward to reliving my childhood years :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 39,677 ✭✭✭✭Itssoeasy


    Yeah the Saturday morning aspect will be a bit of a nostalgia buzz. I remember the start time was similar for the Tokyo show in 2015 where I watched some of it in Dublin airport which was a new wrestling watching experience I have to say.

    Yeah I'll try and watch as much as I can live.


  • Registered Users Posts: 38,005 ✭✭✭✭PTH2009


    Yeah hoping I get up in time Sat for the start but I'll watch whenever I do. We often play Rugby against Aus/All blacks around similar times

    All the Americans are prob having **** attacks cause of the hour it's on over there (5am/2am) but they need to know how it feels for us almost every PPV


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,880 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Think was said in the Greatest Royal Rumble thread, but wonder if it could lead to a big event over here. I doubt we'll get a proper PPV though

    Ireland prob won't get an event like this (it's not certain they will be here next may on the live event tour either)

    The UK or somewhere like Germany/France might get an event like this and I'll deff make the trip


  • Registered Users Posts: 28,880 ✭✭✭✭CastorTroy


    Yeah I just meant this part of the world. Figured UK would be a likely spot since they have regular TV tapings there
